It’s been a long time since I released a sweater pattern! I made this one at the tail end of last winter – I can’t wait to give it some real wearing time this season.

Bottineau Pullover


The easy to wear Bottineau Pullover is perfect for curling up in. The super soft yarn is cozy, but the open cowlneck helps keep you from overheating. A relaxed fit in the body and sleeves is accented by a slip stitch mock rib pattern which draws in to the waist. The oversized cowl is worked in the same pattern with increases to help it lay open. Dress down with jeans and boots, or layer Bottineau over a dress for a cool night out.

Shown in size 36” / 91cm with zero ease. For the best fit, choose the size which is the same or slightly larger than your full bust measurement.

    Is this sweater (which I like very much) named after Bottineau, North Dakota? We had a cabin at a lake near Bottineau when I was a kid.

    I love both the design and the colour! Also, I really do love your skirt, it looks both stylish and cozy!

    Very pretty! I have been itching to start a new sweater but now is not the time since I am pregnant and not my normal size/unsure of what size I will be in future winters :) I will have to admire from afar for now.
